I am 62 and am based in Chennai and suffering from Type 2 Diabetes Patient now on Insulin. My attending Doctor (outstation) has prescribed me Insuman Comb 50 before breakfast & Dinner (22 & 16 units) respectively and I am taking this medicine since 1 1/2 years. To have a second opinion on this drug and also to save some money, I consulted some local for an alternative/substitute one and they suggested that HUMAN MIXTARD 50 (40 IU/ML)/HUMAN MIXTARD 30/70 can be taken in lieu of Insuman Comb 50 and that the former medicine has almost similar effects as that of the latter one. I am confused about the curing effects and shall be much obliged if an expert opinion is provided whether I can consume HUMAN MIXTARD 50 / HUMAN MIXTARD 30/70 in lieu of Insuman Comb 50 and whether there would be any chance of occurrence of any complication. Your expert opinion and guidance in this regard would benefit me immensely. Thank you. Aruna
